of the n.r.a. in an article in this morning's "new york times," they quote senator dianne feinstein who was at a news conference on friday, she is the california democrat who is leading an effort to reinstitute a ban on salmt rifles. she wrote -- host: i want to show you more of what she had to say at the news conference yesterday saying that the n.r.a.'s blanket call to narms our schools is nothing more than a distraction. this is more of what she had to say. [video clip] >> if the schools want to hire armed guards, i support that. it's a decision each school district should make and many school districts already have armed guards. in fact 28,300 public schools. that's act 1/3 of all public schools, have armed security staff. in fact, there were two armed law enforcement officers who twice engaged the shooters at columbine. that didn't prevent 15 from being killed and 23 wounded. copies of the sheriff's investigative transcript with exactly what happened are available right at the back of the room. the n.r.a.'s blanket dual arm our schools is really nothing more than a distraction. it'
that for 10 years when dianne feinstein passed the ban in '94. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i think that is phony piece of legislation and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it is all built on lies that have been found out. heather: gun control advocates equally adamant about their position. here's democratic senator charles schumer. >> he was so extreme and so tone deaf, not even saying that guns had any part of the problem. that he actually probably helped us as we tried to pass sensible gun legislation in the congress. now he says, he says, the only, the best way, the way, here is what he says. the way to stop a bad guy with guns is have a good guy with guns. why don't we stop the bad guy from getting the gun in the first place? that is the more logical thing to do, rather than wait for a shootout in our schools. god forbid. heather: president obama is vowing to push for a some form of unabout control in the new year. we will have more on this debate in the next hour. gregg: as residents of newtown, connecticut, still struggle w
had that for ten years when dianne feinstein passed that ban in '94. it was on the books. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i know this town wants to argue about gun control. i don't think it's what will work. >> adam lanza may not have been able to shoot as many people if he didn't have such ammunition? >> i don't buy that argument. >> it's not possible? >> so many different ways he could have done it. endless amount of ways a monster can do it. >> joining me now is one mom who is taking on the nra, shannon watts, founder of one million moms for gun control. a big welcome to you. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> i know you've studied this issue in depth. so i knew you were listening there to wayne lapierre. what's your reaction to what he just said? >> well, i think a commonsense question is why are we asking someone who profits from the proliferation of guns and ammunition to give us advice on how we can be better protected from guns? it's just not common sense. it's a little bit like the fox guarding the henhouse. as mom, my job i
when dianne feinstein says she's going to introduce this bill, how likely is it to pass and how likely is anything to happen as far as gun control is concerned? >> there's no question that the sentiment has shift ed. we have been reporting on joe mansion who was an a vid supporter saying he's flipped and he wants there to be gun control measures. but he is a pretty safe senator when it comes to the politics of his state. he could be senator for life if he wants to, he's very popular. there are other people up for reelection who are not as safe. they are from gun rights states. many of them are democrats. it's still going to be an uphill battle. there's no chemical weapon about it. it goes back to what we have been talking about since this horrible tragedy happened, which is the main reason why democrats have silent until the newtown tragedy is because it's bad politics. many of them have believed that for the past decade. bad politics in red states to even talk about the idea of gun control. not so much because of the money that the nra puts in but because they are very powerful in gin
by senator dianne feinstein that is about the cia detention and torture program. and that report needs to be made public. because that cop collusively refutes any suggestion that torture was effective. but the key thing about this also in going back to what glenn said is the vacuum of information created by the obama administration. i think we should talk about that. >> jim clemente, i want to get your thoughts on accountability right after we take this break. .

is down 90. senator dianne feinstein introduces her proposed assault weapons ban. the gun control debate will be a huge issue in the new year but for gun stores it means sales are spiking even more so than after the elections. dozens of assault rifles are flying off the shelves by the hour. we will talk to a gun store owner with an extraordinary rise in sales at 10:47. today vladimir putin banned americans from adopting russian children. he doesn't like america's criticism of russia's human rights record. here is my take. this is cruel. thousands of young lives will be spending crude orphanages, thousands of american parents will lose the child they hoped to law as their own. this is a disgrace. america is a very generous country. you are not told this often enough but it is true and it is particularly evident in the adoption process. i don't have the exact number but it is close to a million foreign-born for children adopted into american homes. think of that. all those youngsters who now fraud, think of the generosity of the adopting parents who opened homes and hearts, another race or
